Re: Any chance of expanding the Wild West range?

I'm glad you appreciate my enthusiasm, GarrisonClay. I just turned 51 last week, but when it comes to toy soldiers, I will always be about 8 years old. Thanks to you and all who support my suggestions!

Re: Any chance of expanding the Wild West range?

Hmmm...I wonder how one could make a set strategically as a starting point that leads to more (like if you give a mouse a cookie....then he'll want some milk....then he'll need a on and so forth).

Speaking of the Alamo. If we got new Mexican Infantry, well they could be used for the Mexican War. If we used them for the Mexican War, then we'd need some US Dragoons for Palo Alto and such. And if we had some US Dragoons we could use them for the Wild West of the 1840s through the 1850s for the Santa Fe Trail and other Indian battles (people forget the look of the Custer Cavalry is actually late in the conflict)and of course then we would need some Plains Indians and Apaches to fight the Dragoons, and then if we had Apaches we'd need the troops that fought them the most, Mexican Presidios, which of course would also be used at the Alamo and Mexican War,and...oh what a slippery slope!

Re: Any chance of expanding the Wild West range?

i like the way you think arlin.backdooring things to get some sets for the war with mexico is a great bout some texas rangers as well?

Re: Any chance of expanding the Wild West range?

That IS a wonderful plan, Arlin! And ever since reading "Blood Meridian" I've wanted a 1/72 gang of scalphunters... Maybe there's room for mini Judge Holdens and John Glantons somewhere in here too.

Re: Any chance of expanding the Wild West range?

Yes I would also love to see more Wild West themes:
Dismounted Cav (for Custer's last stand) with carbines and revolvers
Plains Indians (mounted and dismounted)
Apaches (mounted and dismounted)
Texas Rangers
Mountain men

All great suggestions!

Strelets US Cavalry Set 1 is one of my all time favourite Strelets sets. I love the campaign look to them. I have been patiently waiting for more since they first came out. Hope maybe we will see some additions in 2016?
